Curious what the rest of you do in that scenario.
    I did the same thing but sort of have to because the tech guys keep our office freezing down to around 70 or lower. I've debated just leaving the jacket in the office but that hurts variety.

    In my early years (first or two years), I was mildly addicted to wearing a sport coat. I definitely looked better in it and you could say I would feel insecured leaving the house without it. But overtime I got rid off that thought. Long time ago I was fine without it. People are fine without it. So now I have no problem wearing just pants and a shirt when it's hot.

    only time in the months considered 'warmer months' where i'm layering up is when we're camping at yellowstone in may.

    I wish I could comfortably wear layers in warm/hot weather, because I'm very fair and have already had one carcinoma removed from my forehead. But it just gets too hot and humid, so I stick to warm-weather shirt fabrics and keep my sleeves rolled down while I'm outside, and I always wear a hat—out of necessity I've built a nice collection of Panama-style hats. I do wear undershirts, always, because it's easier to replace those when they get gross.

    When it's sufficiently hot I don't layer unless I'm at the office in a situation that requires it. At night, if temps cool down sufficiently, I'll throw on an extra layer - usually a light sweatshirt, long sleeved T, or some sort of lightweight casual jacket - denim or light cotton. In the summer here in DC it doesn't cool down enough, even at night, to require layering.

    In spring and fall we are int he 70s for daytime but it can dip down to the 50s in the evening so I layer so that I can ride with the top down. and my wife likes it way warmer than me so I often have a layer to get rid of when she cranks the heat to 85. In these in between months I usually go for a tank top (not undershirt) and a long sleeve lightweight shirt for road trips. Then a Harrington as a top layer. Or a short sleeve button up and a fleece zip up jacket. I always keep a sweatshirt in the jeep for an extra layer if needed. But just for every day, not really.

    i don't even think it's 'warmer' here in boston yet, consistently. i'm already just wearing an oxford every day. maybe v neck undershirt. but that's it until it gets hotter.

    when it gets hot i go to a short/long sleeve madras button down. often with an a-type undershirt instead.


    the only time i'll put on a jacket is if i'm out on my scooter or motorcycle. maybe a rain coat if it rains.

    I keep a sweater at my desk since the guys there think the office needs to be 70 or colder all the time but for going out and about ... nope. I don't need layers when it's warm.

    Considering where I live I'm layered up 80% of the time, that would be a hard NO!
